So....I went a little over budget this week. Not by much, but we did get our taxes back and I spent some extra money stocking up on meat and produce at Kroger. I had a quick trip to Publix at the beginning of the week and found it BOGO $3.59!, so I spent $7.15 total there. I also spent more than usual at Publix this week but it included all of my homeless donation so I'm going to call it a success. Here's the breakdown:
